Credit Risk Solutions

Credit Risk Solutions are specialist credit and surety insurance brokers, providing bespoke advice for a range of companies across a range of sectors. One of the directors, Hayden Tennant, shares his thoughts below.

Why do you do what you do?

In the main, because it’s an enjoyable challenge. No day is really ever the same – getting up out of bed in a morning is not a problem!

How did you get into your field?

Having dropped out of university, I needed to find a job and joined an independent insurance broker in Bradford, splitting my time between marine and aviation risks, and credit insurance. The latter gripped me, with it being a more hands-on and diverse type of cover and it went from there.

What drives you?

The satisfaction of a job well done for existing clients is a nice feeling, but what really gets the adrenaline pumping is new business. The challenge of designing cover that is structured specifically to match a particular company’s needs and overcoming any scepticism they might have that our product can enhance their business is one that never loses its lustre.

What's your greatest success story?

In business, establishing CRS with my co-founders and growing it to become the largest UK independent broker with the help of everyone who’s been involved since 2003.

What's the most important lesson you've learnt while building your business?

Never be afraid to ask for help. You might know your product inside out, but do you know how to start, maintain and grow a business? Probably not. Professional, specialist advice and an outsiders perspective can be invaluable.

Tell us about your experience as a P&A client...

"From day one, P&A have been invaluable in helping us develop our business from an idea to a successful and growing company today. They have always been the fourth board member and we cannot speak highly enough of everything they do."
